The MOP crew were at their finest working with Alexandra le Gentil (say no more) who produced for Getty. Christopher McMullen also came from France to keep an eye on things. Laurent Picard art directed for TBWA Paris (a saint of a man!). What a great bunch of people and so much fun! Hope to see you all again very soon.
The 4 day shoot involved Bison in Cochrane, helicopters in Drumheller, dinosaur bones near Brooks, and a whole lot of steak. Dan Landin was the most excellent DP. Fergus Brown produced with his usual Scottish extravagance. The extremely nice Anne Hoffman produced for Grabarz. And the Calgary crew were their usual wonderfulness. Please come back, everyone, it was one of the nicest shoots ever.
Director Peter Refle, producer Pascal Bohlen and DP Werner Maritz came to Toronto for the skyscrapers and low-flying helicopter options. It was some fun. We did discuss philosophy.
Christmas comes but many times a year here in Vancouver. Colin Gregg directed and the sun was out! Now that's news. Naturally Kristi, Jeff, Tara, Dave, Chris & Pedro were there, too. Plus the added bonus of Tess! Great snow effects were supplied by HollyNorth. Therapy is good for you; take lots.
Until this Vancouver had almost everything. Now Vancouver has it all. Local Heli-DP/Operator AJ Visak is the best Wescam/Pictorvision shooter in the West. Look for his work on the next VW Touareg ad from John Dolan.
